Posted on Sat , 9 Feb '13
Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC), Syed Ali Shah Geelani, today condemned the hanging of Afzal Guru, saying the latter was not involved in the 2001 Parliament attack and was also not given a chance to defend himself in connection with the case. Geelani said that Guru's hanging at the Tihar Jail this morning is a matter of sorrow and pain for the people of Jammu and Kashmir. Disapproving the government's decision, Geelani further said that he has given a three-day strike call in the Kashmir Valley in this regard. Geelani also condemned the curfew that has been imposed in the Kashmir Valley after Guru's hanging.
